What is Dark Matter composed of? Does it interact non-gravitationally with ordinary particles - and if it does, how and to what extent can high-energy physics shed light on its particle nature? We will discuss how the physics programme of the ATLAS experiment at the LHC may answer these questions in the post-Higgs-boson-discovery era.
